We had just 7 guys make it out to the raceway for our Friday night Womp races. Since we had a small turnout it was decided to have just 1 race instead of an “A” and “B” main. The first heat got underway and it was Jim W who came away with the early lead as he began his night with 41 laps on white. Mel and Paul finished tied for 2nd place at 38 laps at the end of the 1st but Paul would soon take over the top spot as Jim would sit out in the 2nd heat. The 3rd heat would come to an end with Paul in the lead with just a 2 lap lead over Steve L. Paul would have to corner marshal for the next 4 heats allowing for Steve to take over the lead just for 1 heat. Steve was next in line to sit out while Jim W would make his return. The 7th heat would come to an end and Jim W had a 4 lap lead over Mel and a 5 lap lead over Scott. Jim was able to gain another lap in the 8th and now was up to a 5 lap lead over Mel. Jim would have to sit out again in the 9th heat and wouldn’t return til the 12th heat. Steve would finish his night in the 11th heat and finished with a total of 297 laps. It was shaping up to be a close finish between Jim and Mel as Jim had a slight lead going into the last 2 heats. Mel would turn the most laps in the 13th heat with 41 but Jim still had a 5 lap lead with just 1 heat to go. Paul and Mel would tie for the most laps in the final heat with 40 but Jim would remain just 1 lap ahead of Mel giving him the 1st place finish; with Jim at 318 and Mel at 317. So here’s how the final played out for our Friday night Womp race; Jim, Mel, Pepper, Scott, Paul, Steve, and Tim B.
It’s the first Friday of the month so we are racing the flexi 1/32’s. The turnout was light as we had just 6 racers. Word has still not got out about just how much fun we have Friday nights. In the first heat; Jim, Mel, and Tim got off to good starts. In the 2nd Jim was able to pull out a small lead, In the 3rd heat Paul joined the race and showed us what speed he had. It appeared after Paul got going the rest of us would be racing for 2nd place. Paul started with 47 laps on red and 48 on green, only Mel was able to match that pace. When Paul went to orange and turned 49 laps he took a 2 lap lead. After everyone had completed 4 heats and were halfway home it was; Paul 192, Jim 189, Mel 187, Tim 180, Steve 178, and Scott 177. Jim had a big finish with 46, 48, and 49 on black, yellow, and blue but it was not quite enough to make up the ten laps he had fallen behind Paul. Mel lost his chance to finish well when he only did 41 on black, 2 behind Paul’s 43 and 5 behind Jims total on the tough lane. Scott was having trouble staying out of crashes and finally had to quit after a crash knocked his motor out in heat 10. Steve was having a close race with Tim but black and purple were his downfall losing 2 laps on each to Tim. Paul would come away with the win as he finished the night with 379 laps so the final played out like this; Paul, Jim, Mel, Tim, Steve, and Scott. Congrats to Paul as he was very fast tonight, hopefully he can follow it up with another win next week.
This Friday its toothbrush motored 1/32’s, we had Chris Howard joining us in the spot usually occupied by Giddeon. So the format was 4 on and 3 off. Heat one Jim started strong running 47 on the slowest lane, red. Two laps behind were Mel and Steve. Heat 2 was another good one for Jim and Tim got going and caught up with Steve. Paul joined us in the 2nd heat and fell off a few too many times to turn more than 44 laps but his car was really fast. It could be Paul’s night, heat 3 was a big one for Jim turning a best lap of 3.50 and cranking out 50 laps. Paul got going in this heat, he turned 47 laps and showed some good speed. Scott joined us in heat 3. Heat 4 Jim closed our his first half with a total of 194 laps on pace to beat the record of 380 laps, Paul had another good heat of 47. Chris joined us in heat 4. Heat 5 saw Mel come back in and have a pretty good 46 on red. Paul closed out his first half with 48 for 186 total. Scott had a good 47 on orange and Chris got it going turning 3.89 lap on green. Heat 6 and 7 closed out the first half with Mel at 184 and Scott 180. Heat 8, the start of the second half was another big heat for Jim turning his second 50 lap heat. Mel was second in the heat with only 43. Heat 9 saw Paul come in and turn a real strong 49 on blue with a best lap of 3.56. Heat 10 and Scott rejoined the race turning 47 laps to equal Paul for the best in the heat. Jim had a poor black turning only 44 putting his quest for the record in jeopardy. Heat 11 and Jim needed 46 to tie the race lap record. Chris rejoined and was running better than he had in the first half. Jim got his laps plus 2 more upping the record to 282. Paul had 44 on black and Chris and Scott had 43. Heat 12 Mel rejoined and tied Paul with 47 to win the heat. Scott had the evenings best heat on black with 45 and Chris had 42. Paul was done with 373, a very good total. Going into the last heat positions 1 thru 4 were set but 5 was for grabs. Steve and Chris had 298, Tim was 2 back with 296. However Tim was on the fastest lane; blue. In the first 10 laps Tim made up the 2 he was behind. Steve made it through a couple of crashes and took the lead although they were all on the same lap. In the end, Chris came roaring through to take 5th ahead of Tim with Steve a lap back.
Last Friday we had just 7 racers when it came time to begin our Friday night Womp races so we were going to have just 1 race instead of an “A” and “B”. The power came on and the 4 racers took off and made their way into the bank. Everyone seemed to have a good first heat but it was Paul F who came away with the lead after 1 as he had a solid 42 laps on orange with Jim W just 1 lap back with 41 laps. During the 2nd heat Jim would catch Paul and they were tied at the end of the 2nd at 82 laps. Paul would sit out the next 3 heats so Jim took over in the top spot. The 3rd heat would come to an end and Jim was already up to 123 laps when it came his time to sit out. Mel began his night in the 3rd heat and got off to a good start opening up with 40 laps on red then he would have back to back 41's in the 5th and 6th heat. In the 7th heat 3 of the 4 racers would have 41 laps, Paul was the odd ball and had 42 laps on green. Jim was in the lead just 1 lap ahead of Paul at the end of the 8th heat. During the 9th Jim would gain another lap on Paul now putting him ahead by 2 laps with just 4 heats to go. Jim would have another 41 laps in the 10th as it would come his time to sit out and corner marshall again. Paul made his return in the 13th heat and had a solid 43 laps on blue so it was shaping up to be a close finish between Paul and Jim for the top spot. Again in the final heat we had 3 of the 4 racers turn 39 laps while Steve L had 37 on black. Paul and Jim would finish tied for the lead at 326 laps but Paul would come away with the win as the power went off and barely coasted past Jim giving him the 1st place finish. So the final for the Friday night Womp race played out like this; Paul, Jim, Mel, Steve L, Scott, Tim B, and Giddeon.
